Renewed CCTV appeal after racially-aggravated assault

We want to hear from anyone who recognises this man.

We are making a renewed appeal for information to help our investigation into a racially-aggravated assault in Bridgwater.

One man, in his 40s, was in Penel Orlieu when he was punched and kicked by a number of men at about 10pm on Saturday 16 April. He sustained GBH-level injuries, including a fractured jaw.

He was with a second man who was also punched.

One of the victims reported that racially-aggravated words were used during the incident.

Two men have attended a voluntary police interview. We issued an appeal in June that helped us identify a further two people in connection with our enquiries.

We hope the public can help us identify this man, from a new CCTV image, who is described as white, bald and wearing a black hooded top.

Anyone who recognises him, or witnessed the assault, is asked to call 101 and give reference number 5222095441.

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5222095441, or complete our online appeals form.

You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
